Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management – Special Issue: Using qualitative methods to respond to the changing nature of work

How will people work in 2040 and beyond? How do we make sense now of the societal, economic and environmental pressures that will impact work in the future? As we approach the third decade of the 21st century, the world of work is facing deep uncertainty.

This special issue asks us to respond to the question of how do we as organizational scholars qualitatively study the future of ‘work’ and develop ways of understanding for both theory and practice from a multitude of different perspectives (for example, organisational, human resources, socio-technological, gender, indigenous, etc.)? We welcome submission of papers focusing upon qualitative research on the future of work, and what that means for work and workers.
